I See You Favor a .45 by RoxyRoo I See You Favor a .45 by RoxyRoo
Remember that armor I've been working on forever? yeah... this is it.

I'm a lady spartan!

Spartan = :iconroxyroo:

I won't go into too much detail about how I made this. If you want every single piece of info, please head over to my build thread at 405th. >>> [link]

This armor took 8 months to build (in between work and school). I used a mixture of EVA and Craft Foam, and put it together with hot glue, sealed it with plasti-dip, and painted with with 6 different kinds of spray paint. I can see out of the helmet through a mesh at the bottom and through the door "peep" hole at the front. I can sit, walk, and go upstairs; I nearly have full range of motion. I made EVERYTHING myself. This is the most difficult costume I've made to date and I will be wearing it for many cons to come.

Needless to say, I'm a huge halo fan. This is my Noble 6.

Yeah, but what do you see out of? Is it that little hole in the front? And by the way, awesome job! I like the combination of colors you chose, orange-brownish red.

I thought I recognised the username from 405th =)
Magnificent job on the suit! How well can you see out of the peep hole? It looks like it'd be quite far from your eye given the length of the Gungnir helmet

Hello, fellow 405th-er! This is my main domain.
Thank you. ^_^ The peep hole is rather strange to look through. I can see okay, but not well. I usually have to have someone walk with me or in front of me so I can follow them and not bump into anyone. I can't see side-traffic unless I turn my head. The peep hole tube extends about 2 inches inward, and comes quite comfortably right in front of my left eye.

Sister, "Cool."
